Mid-week Margaritas, after-work Appletini’s, cheeky liquid lunches…Women love cocktails and there’s just something about Monday to Friday deals coupled with the spring air which make it all the more tempting to indulge in a mid-week sip.
Sadly, as much as we love an impromptu Cosmo, a busy working week can make us feel under prepare, and there’s nothing worse than turning up to a plush bar with oily hair or puffy eyes! That’s why we’re resolving to change our ways and get organised this spring. Follow our transitional styling tips and never turn down a Monday Mojito again!

The idea of going for drinks on a non-hair washing day is enough to send some women into a state of panic, and for that there’s dry shampoo. Pop a travel size edition into a spacious handbag such as the Fiorelli Bronte Tote ready for a last minute spritz. For a quick and easy up-do grab some bobby pins, a hair tie and a high quality hairbrush such as the iconic Tangle Teezer. Tie hair in a high ponytail and then twist hair around into a bun, securing with bobby pins.
For the less spontaneous after work tipples, give your skin some VIP treatment the night before with a triple-action face mask. The Balance Me Radiance Face Mask is a cleansing, toning and brightening treatment which multi-tasks to leave skin feeling rejuvenated and fresh.
A good nail varnish and top coat will ideally last the week without chipping. Paint your nails with 2 coats of varnish and apply a top coat on Sunday night, and you should have salon certified nails from Monday to Friday.
Pack an after work makeup bag consisting of gel eyeliner, statement lipstick and a pressed powder- these are the Holy Grail products which will instantly take your look from day to night. Opt for a long-wear foundation and mascara during the day, then, just before leaving work create a cat-flick effect with gel eyeliner, pop on a slick of rich red lipstick, and apply pressed powder for that photo ready look.
Spring has opened up the wardrobe palette to include pastels and patterns. Even better is the fact us ladies can finally trade those cable knit jumpers in for feminine shift blouses. The matching top and trouser trend is in for spring and is the perfect combination to take you from the office to the cocktail bar. Dress the look down for work with loafers and a cardigan then come the evening swap the sensible shoes for heels and add a couple of glamorous accessories such as these Silver and Rose Gold Earrings. Complete the look with a neutral coloured bag like the Fiorelli Paris which is large enough to store all those beauty essentials mentioned earlier. Voila!
